As Think Progress transcribes:

BROOKS: You know, all three of us spend a lot of time covering politicians and I don’t know about you guys, but in my view, they’re all emotional freaks of one sort or another. They’re guaranteed to invade your personal space, touch you. I sat next to a Republican senator once at dinner and he had his hand on my inner thigh the whole time. I was like, ehh, get me out of here.


What is wrong with Republican Senators!!!

Only the Despicable George W Bush and Alberto Gonzales Could Make John Ashcroft Look Like the Hero

July 10, 2009 at 7:49 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

Seriously! Bravo to Ashcroft, who on his near death bed said no to George Bush and Alberto Gonzales’ attempts to get the DOJ to sign off on a highly illegal, as yet to be revealed, program (which, the way things are going, we’re gonna hear about very soon). It apparently is a program that shocked even hardcore Republicans.

Truly, George W. Bush was the worst president America has ever had. And it is really sad that we didn’t impeach him or try him for war crimes while he was in office. He can still be tried for war crimes and treason. But not with the terrible Congress we currently have, and certainly not by Barack Obama, who would rather us move along to greener pastures.

Terminate the CIA, Stop Giving Them Funds, Cease Their Service

July 10, 2009 at 7:00 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

Seriously, the CIA is constantly shooting America in the foot, and needs to be shut down. Their service does not benefit America, but rather hinders our progress forward. They lie to Congress and to America. They exist within a sphere of blackness and secrecy that is poisoning our, otherwise, open society. They work at the pleasure and command of the President, and has generally been used by presidents to do illegal work presidents would otherwise not be able to do. They sow chaos around the world because presidents think sowing chaos does America a service.

For instance, President Eisenhower wanted to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953. But overt action would have been full scale war, lots of people dead, and so on. But give that action to a covert op with little accountability, well, you’ve got your escape. Doesn’t matter that that action ends up coming to bite us in the ass decades later. Sow chaos in Cambodia. Sow chaos in Indonesia. Sow chaos in Latin America. Sow chaos in the Middle East. Suddenly, America has to be overtly in more places than America needs to. And all because of the CIA.

It’s time to end their disservice. Close that book. Send them packing with the dodo bird on the beaches of extinction.

Sarah Palin Is Leaving Alaska For The Money

Clear as an Alaskan stream (and those are quite clear). She is leaving Alaskans because she will get millions of dollars from her book deal. She did it for the money.

Vote Them All Out Of Office

I’m with the commentators in saying to New York state voters. Vote every single one of the current state senators out of power in the next election. They have utterly failed the state. Every single one of them. Kick them out.

Fund Health Care

July 8, 2009 at 10:18 pm | Posted in American politics | 1 Comment

Tax the wealthy.

Simple answers to simple questions. It’s not like America hasn’t taxed the wealthy before to solve major problems. After all, even during the Eisenhower administration, the wealthiest Americans were taxed at 90%. I don’t advocate such a high tax, but just saying, today’s wealthiest Americans are BY FAR wealthier than America’s wealthy ever have been. Middle class and lower class have stagnated or sunk over the past 30 years (thanks to Republican policies) while the rich have prospered beyond anyone’s imaginations. Tax them. Tax them well. 50% ought to pay for health care, balance our budget, and even pay down some of that nasty debt we are incurring and passing down to our children.

Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade is Fucking Crazy

Swedes have purer genes because Swedes marry other Swedes. America’s genes are therefore “impure” because we marry everybody. “Other species and other ethnics.” What the fuck is wrong with this guy? And why is he still on America’s television sets?

The Stupidity of Conservatives – Sarah Palin Edition

July 7, 2009 at 10:59 am | Posted in American politics | 2 Comments

Yes, the woman millions of Americans would love to see as president:

But as for whether another pursuit of national office, as she did less than a year ago when she joined Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the race for the White House, would result in the same political blood sport, Palin said there is a difference between the White House and what she has experienced in Alaska. If she were in the White House, she said, the “department of law” would protect her from baseless ethical allegations.”I think on a national level, your department of law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we’ve been charged with and automatically throw them out,” she said. There is no “Department of Law” at the White House.

Department of Law? “protect” from baseless accusations? “automatically throw them out?” Can you say “DICTATOR!”

Liberal Media Bias My Ass

July 6, 2009 at 6:45 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

Sarah Palin succeeded with her plan to announce her resignation on Friday “news dump” night, and not just any night, but the Friday before a major holiday. This morning’s Today Show went right back to Michael Jackson, spending most of the time talking about all the lurid details, drugs, doctors, and child custody battles, the real red meat of morning shows.

They spent only a short amount of time talking about Sarah Palin, and guess who they had on as a commentator? Bill Kristol. Yeah, liberal media my ass.

Fox News Criticizes Sarah Palin!

July 5, 2009 at 8:18 pm | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

Hell may not be freezing over, but it’s getting cold down there. When Fox News turns on the Republican standard bearer, surely that’s a good sign of the sheer insanity of the crazy lady of Wasilla.

Ms. Trotta has a great point, though, about what a highly educated, well articulated, well reasoned man like William Buckley would say about someone like Sarah Palin leading the conservative movement. We do know what Christopher Buckley, William’s son thinks, and he voted for Obama last November specifically because of Sarah Palin. and he wasn’t kind to her after the election.

What Republicans and conservatives need to do is tell Mrs. Palin to shut the hell up and stay in that nice home of hers in Wasilla and maybe take some more college courses on economics, history, and politics. Oh, and some English classes too, to help her grammar and articulation. She is a disgrace and she is destroying the Republican party.

The Sarah Palin I-Quit-Arod

Brilliant title. It seems Sarah Palin is a born quitter. Is there anything she has actually completed?

Get Sarah Palin a Whaaaaaambulance STAT!

July 4, 2009 at 10:50 pm | Posted in American politics | 3 Comments

What a total utterly sniveling crybaby!

First she releases a 4th of July message in which she tries to be patriotic, but fails…stupendously. Her note includes this little gem:

The response in the main stream media has been most predictable, ironic, and as always, detached from the lives of ordinary Americans who are sick of the “politics of personal destruction”. How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it’s about country. And though it’s honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term, of course we know by now, for some reason a different standard applies for the decisions I make.

Whaaaaaa! Her feewings got hurt…awww, does she need a band aid? And… is she a bit jealous at Obama? Note her attempted dig, a failed pot shot at the president. “And though it’s honorable for countless others to leave their positions for a higher calling and without finishing a term…” Is she really trying to take a dig at Obama? Who didn’t resign his position as Senator of Illinois until AFTER the results were official and he was elected president? What a jealous bitch. Note also the “martyr complex.” She thinks she is held to a different standard. Classic martyr complex. “Please, media, please crucify me, I’ll score all sorts of points with my constituents.”

Then her lawyer thinks he’s getting nasty with those dastardly bloggers…

To the extent several websites, most notably liberal Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore, are now claiming as “fact” that Governor Palin resigned because she is “under federal investigation” for embezzlement or other criminal wrongdoing, we will be exploring legal options this week to address such defamation. This is to provide notice to Ms. Moore, and those who re-publish the defamation, such as Huffington Post, MSNBC, the New York Times and The Washington Post, that the Palins will not allow them to propagate defamatory material without answering to this in a court of law. The Alaska Constitution protects the right of free speech, while simultaneously holding those “responsible for the abuse of that right.” Alaska Constitution Art. I, Sec. 5.… These falsehoods abuse the right to free speech; continuing to publish these falsehoods of criminal activity is reckless, done without any regard for the truth, and is actionable.

Thomas Van Flein, for
Governor Sarah Palin

Whaaaa! Whaaaaa! WHAAAAAAA!

What the hell is wrong with the Republicans and America’s conservatives? What the hell is wrong with you guys? Why the hell do you revere a person as stupid as Sarah Palin? She is literally more stupid than a totem pole. Why the hell do you guys give her any, and I mean ANY credibility, or influence among your group? Do you guys not realize how utterly ridiculous she makes you guys look? The more she opens her mouth and speaks for you guys, the worse she makes you guys look. Do you not see this?

If Republicans and conservatives want to be taken seriously and not be derided, made fun of, ridiculed from here on out, they must purge the Sarah Palins from their communities.

PS: Paul Begala does a fine job noting uh… how poorly Sarah Palin wrote her resignation speech:

It was an almost impossible mission, but in resigning from office with 17 months to go in her first term, Sarah Palin has made herself the bull goose loony of the GOP.

Let’s stipulate that if there is some heretofore unknown personal, medical or family crisis, this was the right move. But Gov. Palin didn’t say anything like that. Her statement was incoherent, bizarre and juvenile. The text, as posted on Gov. Palin’s official website (here), uses 2,549 words and 18 exclamation points. Lincoln freed the slaves with 719 words and nary an exclamation; Mr. Jefferson declared our independence in 1,322 words and, again, no exclamation points. Nixon resigned the presidency in 1,796 words — still no exclamation points. Gov. Palin capitalized words at random – whole words, like “TO,” “HELP,” and “AND,” and the first letter of “Troops.”

Gov. Palin’s official announcement that she is resigning as chief executive of the great state of Alaska had all the depth and gravitas of a 13-year-old’s review of the Jonas Brothers’ album on Facebook.

Well said Mr. Begala. It’s really ironic because it is the conservative movement that decries the supposedly horrid conditions in our educational system, yet it is generally among the conservative movement that you find the worst and most egregious examples of not just misspellings but of grammar and sentence structure. Guess they should have spent more time learning than deriding their learning…

Want Good Health Insurance? Go Work For The Government

Palin to Alaskans: Screw You

July 3, 2009 at 7:10 pm | Posted in American politics | 1 Comment

That’s essentially what it means that she quits her job before even finishing her first term.

If truly she is quitting her job as Alaskan governor so that she can better prepare for 2012, then she basically says to Alaskans, screw you. What kind of president do you think that would make her? If she gets tired of her job 30 months into the presidency, what is she gonna do? Quit? “Sorry America, I don’t like this job anymore, I’m gonna hand over the reins to my VP. Hasta La Vista.”

The real reasons may be that she really is not ready for the pressure of the national spotlight. What I mean by this, she’s just not educated enough, she’s not been trained enough on how to manage her persona, she’s too erratic, when she really needs to display strong consistency. She may also truly hate how her family is attacked in the press. Having a rather eclectic family, and also a daughter who rather awkwardly goes against the grain and gets pregnant with her boyfriend, makes it very hard to keep the family out of the spotlight, particularly when your party runs on “family values.” I’m sure that really wore her and her family down over time.

She is also probably about to be hit with a very damning and politically destroying scandal related to how terribly she’s been running Alaska and wants out on her terms.

Either way, she’s telling Alaskans, screw you.

Mitt Romney’s Convoluted Foreign Policy

July 3, 2009 at 7:33 am | Posted in American politics | 2 Comments

Please, let not this man become president

There are four competing nations or groups of nations, representing four different ways of ways of life, that are vying to lead the world before the end of this century.

One is the world’s democracies, led by America. Our strategy is based on two principles: free enterprise and individual liberty. These have led us to become the most powerful nation in the history of the world.

China represents a different strategy. Theirs is also based on two principles: free enterprise is one of them. They witnessed the bankruptcy of communism first hand, and have adopted free enterprise like it was their own. As a result, hundreds of millions of their poor have been lifted from poverty. But their second strategic dimension is not freedom, it is authoritarianism.

Another competitor is Russia. Like China, their strategy is also based on authoritarianism. But unlike China, their economic might is derived not from industry, but from energy. They seek to control the energy of the world, filling their treasury and emptying everyone else’s as we pay for what they have in abundance.

The fourth strategy is that of the Jihadists. By means of escalating violence, they intend to cause the collapse of the other three competing visions, dragging the entire world back into a medieval dictatorship ruled by Mullahs and Ayatollahs.

Of these four competing strategies, notice that only one includes freedom. Only if America succeeds will freedom endure. Do not imagine for a single moment that China, Russia and the Jihadists have no intention of surpassing America and leading the world. Each is entirely convinced that it can do so….

…Freedom is threatened not just by those who aspire to world leadership, but also by the rogue and malevolent. North Korea has made it abundantly clear that they are not only intent on perfecting nuclear weapons, but they are contemptuous of the concerns of the United States and the world at large. It was no accident that they launched their missile while the President was addressing nuclear non-proliferation, and executed their nuclear test to coincide with Memorial Day.

Or as the good folks at the New Republic show us in Powerpoint form:

Goodness, this man does not know foreign policy.

So Much For Democracy in Honduras

July 2, 2009 at 10:37 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

It’s really sad, but the Honduran Congress just revoked numerous Constitutional rights:

1. The right to protest.
2. Freedom in one’s home from unwarranted search, seizure and arrest.
3. Freedom of association.
4. Guarantees of rights of due process while under arrest.
5. Freedom of transit in the country.

one wonders why the very same people who attack Obama for not speaking out more for the plight of Iranian protesters are at the very same time attacking Obama for denouncing the military coup in Honduras…

Amnesty International Calls Israel’s War on Gaza Full of War Crimes

July 2, 2009 at 6:24 am | Posted in American politics | Leave a comment

stating that Israel was reckless with its disregard for civilian casualties. I hate to state the obvious, but it’s quite clear that Israel disregards Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip. In Israel’s eyes, the entire Gaza Strip is Hamas. Killing a civilian in Gaza Strip is killing a member of Hamas in their eyes. Or else they wouldn’t have done it. Killing 1400 Palestinians in three weeks is killing 1400 members of Hamas in Israel’s eyes. Or else they would not have done it.

Glenn Beck Wishes Bin Laden Attacked The United States Again

July 1, 2009 at 8:40 am | Posted in American politics | 15 Comments

The man is a fucking insane lunatic.

He and Michael Scheuer think America needs Osama Bin Laden to detonate a major device in America, thus triggering an uprising of Americans to force American leadership to “change.” Glenn Beck wants Osama Bin Laden to attack America, so that he can use that as the excuse to cause a regime change in America, kick Obama and the Democrats out of office because they don’t agree with his ways. The man is fucking insane. He is treasonous.

As Gawker notes: Happy Fourth of July everybody.

PS: Glenn Beck thinks America bought Alaska in the 1950s.

What a stupid idiot. As Think Progress correctly notes, Alaska was bought in 1867, in what was known as “Seward’s Folly” for wasting so much money on such a desolate, hard to get to, land.
